Track Name: Footfall
I wish it was simple, I wish I could feel alive
Wish I had anything to cure this spite
But here I am lost and fallen, and it’s all that I have

I need to be timeless
I need this state of change to never end
And I can’t find the words to tell you that I’m trying
Forever and always, even if I change

And sometimes it feels like I can make no progress
The time it crawls like ancient sunsets
So far from view, and so far from home
But I get the feeling that I'm not alone

And now to fall in line, with such perfect timing
As fate conspires, and sets the fires
To lead away from darkened days
As footfall takes us so far away

And I’ll run on
Believe me I know I was wrong
My legs carry faster than my words can take me
I know this might break me
But if this is my only chance, then this is the end

And I’ll run on
Believe me I know I was wrong
My legs carry faster than my words can take me
I know this might break me
But if this is my only chance, then this is the end
Track Name: Destiny
Here I stand with the world I face
I’ve been blessed with the mystery the few of us have found
And I am humbled by the things I’ve seen
In the sun, in the stars, on the ground we make our lives on

I do my best just to appreciate
This world owes me nothing and I owe it the world
For it has given me the chance to be grateful and loved
By those who keep my head on

And I am humbled by the dreams I chase
And to see the stars in outer space
All the ways to breath familiar air
And I want you to be there

And all I want is someone to be there for me
To fall in love and live forever happily
To make a life, to take the things I make believe
And turn them into destiny

And I am humbled by the dreams I chase
And to see the stars in outer space
All the ways to breath familiar air
And I want you to be there
Track Name: Dear You,
I wrote you a letter, I wrote you the future
So you would remember and not have excuses
And now here you sit feeling lost in your thoughts
On the verge of the brilliant, at the edge of the lost
Someday…Oh, someday

Oh you were naïve, overconfident
Your insightful insanity paid off
You’ve got to smile through disaster, never settle for the answers
Remember what I wrote if you’re ever feeling lost

So chase with everything you have
You won’t get a second chance
It’s ok to move too fast, to touch and go
I know the good when I see it
And I’m in it for the reasons
And if you’re not a part of the long run, I have to let you go

Remember:
You’ll be beaten by sick, you’ll be beaten by faceless
You’ll be bound until your broken for every word that’s spoken
But you will rise, impossibly, now rise for everyone to see

So chase with everything you have
You won’t get a second chance
It’s ok to move too fast, to touch and go
I know the good when I see it
And I’m in it for the reasons
And if you’re not a part of the long run, I have to let you go

So chase with everything you have
You won’t get a second chance
It’s ok to move too fast, to touch and go
I know the good when I see it
And I’m in it for the reasons
And if you’re not a part of the long run, I have to let you go
Track Name: Crash And Burn
And so we will fall, over and over and over and over again
To die a thousand deaths
Tired and worn, from the running and falling and chasing that we never win
And it takes away our breath, again
And it takes away our breath, again...

The truth is far from perfect, the truth is I am tired
The sad and sudden weight of the future hanging in the night
And I feel my breath as it steadies, and I feel my stomach turn
I wonder what you’re thinking, and if I'll ever learn
And if I'll ever learn...

And the shadows creep along
And the stranger won't belong
But I'm here, yeah I'm here
And I swear I’ll make a change
And it'll take your breath away
That I’m here, yeah I’m here

I should have listened closer, I should have listened hard
To the angel on my shoulder, not the devil in my heart
And I feel my pulse as it steadies, and I feel like it’s my turn
And I am holding, and I am ready, ready to crash and burn

And the shadows creep along
And the stranger won't belong
But I'm here, yeah I'm here
And I swear I’ll make a change
And it'll take your breath away
That I’m here, yeah I’m here

And the shadows creep along
And the stranger won't belong
But I'm here, yeah I'm here
And I swear I’ll make a change
And it'll take your breath away
That I’m here, yeah I’m here
Track Name: Segue
But if I could interrupt you, no I am not lost nor corrupted
All I want, all I’m waiting for is for you to try
To give a fuck, just for a second, to drop your walls and your weapons
Or I will run, I will run, I will run into the night

And you will never find me, never in your dreams am I hiding
I am the ghost of a thought and I am everything you’re not
And I can scream, and I can call out, I can crash and burn into fallout
But I am here, and I survive, and it is crushing me
Track Name: Words And Will
What if we were trapped forever in routine?
And the only thing we had was our wishes and our dreams
Would you know where to begin? Or would you fall apart and scream?
To be born once more again into this life you didn't mean to find here

What if we could learn to live with everything in mind?
Have vision, resolution, and the words and will to fight
Where thought is not accepted as an ancient lost technique
And the more we feel the edge approach the further we can see

But now we're standing on the edge of the abyss
Afraid to look, afraid to glance, afraid of this
What if all these thoughts had found their way into your heart?
Could darkness silence the spark?

And baby, I know I’m not your saving grace
I may not be the one for you today
But maybe, if you feel it in your heart, maybe someday
You’ll see, and I’ll be here, right here believe me

Right on the edge where we belong
Where the words are never done
At the violent ends we’ve come to see
Right where we went wrong
At the place I had feared to come
One more step, just one…
But then you're gone

But if I could interrupt you, no I am not lost nor corrupted
All I want, and all I’m waiting for is for you, to try
To give a fuck, just for a second, to drop your walls and your weapons
Or I will run, I will run, I will run into the night
And you will never find me, never in your dreams am I hiding
I am the ghost of a thought and I am everything you’re not
And I can scream, and I can call out, I can crash and burn into fallout
But I am here, and I survived, and it is crushing me

And baby, I know I’m not your saving grace
I may not be the one for you today
But maybe, if you feel it in your heart, maybe someday
You’ll see, and I’ll be here, right here believe me

Right on the edge where we belong
Where the words are never done
At the violent ends we’ve come to see
Right where we went wrong
At the place I had feared to come
One more step, just one…
But then you're gone
Track Name: Falling Forward
I can’t help it that I try this hard
And it kills me to believe that you have somehow now forgot
It is my silly dream that I believe in true love
And a life, and a laughter that you’re always thinking of
And I miss you

And I want nothing more than to live my whole life
With someone who gives me the chance to be alive
But people have become so lost and people have become so scared
That they believe there is no good left in the world

Because caution in love is the most dangerous type
And it’s holding us back and it is holding you tight
But if you can find it in you to believe you’re not alone
Take a chance, please never let me go

And I know that you’re careful and I know that you’re scared
Because you’ve seen what lies can do to those you thought were always there
But if you can find it in your heart, if you can find it in your soul
Trust me, believe me, and you’ll know

Because caution in love is the most dangerous type
And it’s holding us back and it is holding you tight
But if you can find it in you to believe you’re not alone
Take a chance, please never let me go
Track Name: The Great Cycle
And it's always don't jump, look before you leap
But don't wait, a chance will always leave
And don't try so hard cause god-forbid you're interested
And it's always don't fall, because the climb always hard
But it's better to have loved, than to have never lost
And don't say so much because you might just say it all

And if I could love you I would
But the beauty of it is, is that we’re all misunderstood
And I’ll tell you I’m there
And I’m scared, yeah we’re scared

And it’s never easy, the future is uncertain
The past is never clear and the thoughts are now your burden
But don’t worry now, you’re not really in control
Because there’s people with worries just like you
Who’ve been burned by the world, and even if you’re true
You’ll have to pay for the mistakes that those have made

And if I could love you I would
But the beauty of it is, is that we’re all misunderstood
And I’ll tell you I’m there
And I’m scared, yeah we’re scared

And if I could love you I would
But the beauty of it is, is that we’re all misunderstood
And I’ll tell you I’m there
And I’m scared, yeah we’re scared
Track Name: Evolve
I have this urge that beckons free
A caged beast, that paces anxiously
Steady, relentless and calm
But not for long…
No, not for long

Do you get the sense, you were meant for something?
That deep within you something's wrong
And when it’s unleashed, it will blow everyone away
And everything will change, if you just hold on

This is my hope without fear I’m a failure
I’ll try or will die if I don’t
Forget what they taught you, forget what they want
Remember you only live once
Change, do it now don’t give up
Evolve

This is my hope without fear I’m a failure
I’ll try or will die if I don’t
Forget what they taught you, forget what they want
Remember you only live once
Change, do it now don’t give up
Evolve
Track Name: The Fight
It pulls, it hurts, it begs me, and begs me…
And I know it’s worth betrays me
And though the fight seems wasted
Deep within I face it, I chase it

And yes I struggle, yes I fought for every inch I’ve ever gained
The back and forth is just enough to make me feel like I’m insane
I fight for truth, I fight for love, and for the chance to be reborn
I fight for meaning, and I’ve got more than you could ever bargain for

And yes I’m pulled, yes I’m tempted, yeah I want it more and more
But this humble quest I’ve started leads to worlds I can’t ignore
Because I’ve seen it, because I felt it, because I know that it exists
Because it’s written through the ages and worth every second lived

And we go forward marching to the beat
Thunder made by our own feet
But now’s the struggle, now’s the fight we’ve all been waiting for
Forward on toward the sound
Burning bridges to the ground
Here’s the struggle, here’s the fight we’ve all been waiting for

So hold close the words you shouldn’t let go
Cause if you don’t they’re only going to pull you down
So hold tight the thoughts you wouldn’t let them
Take right from your hands, yeah when they come around

And we go forward marching to the beat
Thunder made by our own feet
But now’s the struggle, now’s the fight we’ve all been waiting for
Forward on toward the sound
Burning bridges to the ground
Here’s the struggle, here’s the fight we’ve all been waiting for
Track Name: The Great Escape
I hear you renegade, in the dark, as you sneak up
As thunder rolls, and rain falls cold on your heart
Against the wind that tears through skin
And eyes turn skyward for anything
But now things have changed, I feel your pain
And restless days will lead the way home

Now run for your life, for your love
For everything you’ve been dreaming of
In this world we live once, and we try
And everything that you leave behind becomes ours to share
Please take great care, because the stories that surround us become echoes of our past
If we can last, if we can live, if we can give…

I hear you renegade, in the dark, as you sneak up
As thunder rolls and rain falls cold
Restless days will lead the way home
Track Name: Of Dreams
What happened to the hope, the love, the heroes and the lovers?
The search for truth and the struggle for each other?
The things we only mention in our hours of invention
I hope you find the truth to life in searching for your meaning
Escape the lies the sorrow and the cheating
All we have to do is have the best time of our lives
It’s our time

I hope the world is good to you
And everywhere you travel you find the strength to endure every battle
And more than anything I hope you find the love you seek
I pray it sweeps you off your feet and takes you for a whirl
And if it isn’t me, I hope you see the world through the eyes of those who love you
And may they never lie or hurt you

And it is our right to be alive
To live and love and try
To fail and to learn
And live the life you earn
It is our grand experiment
To do with what we can
The thrill of never knowing
Forever we are growing
And that’s life

And it is our right to be alive
To live and love and try
To fail and to learn
And live the life you earn
It is our grand experiment
To do with what we can
The thrill of never knowing
Forever we are growing
And that’s life
Track Name: Best Kept Secrets
These are words that you will never hear
This melody will reach you to dance upon your ears
But meaning becomes lost within the chance to take a chance
The chance becomes the urge to run while never looking back

And so I sing to you, though you won't know
And in this light I stand alone
And if the day will ever come
I swear that I will find you, and together we will run

I'm split between the best of both the worlds that I can see
I've always been the type to run, but want so bad to keep
Safe and sound with someone else, who I can call my own
But I'm born to run, so my "I love you’s" never part my tongue

And so I sing to you, though you won't know
And in this light I stand alone
And if the day will ever come
I swear that I will find you, and together we will run

I've done my best, kept to myself, but the urge is never gone
I'll keep you safe the best I can by writing you this song
So I will know that you have heard the things within my heart
While giving me the chance to chase this never-ending art

And so I sing to you, though you won't know
And in this light I stand alone
And if the day will ever come
I swear that I will find you, and together we will run

And together we will run
